About

My wife Jen and I moved to the Denver area in July 2007. Originally from Chicago, we moved West to explore the outdoors. We both like hiking, backpacking, camping and skiing. Beyond that, she likes horses and I like photography.

I launched this site in April 2008, so its still very much a work in progress. My goal is to share my adventures in Colorado and elsewhere around the world. And when possible, to provide helpful information about one of my favorite pastimes: hiking/backpacking.

Thank you for visiting!   -Kevin

My friend Niran mentioned the javascript library jQuery, and after some prototyping I decided to incorporate it into my site. The first results of which produced the thumbnails now available on the slideshow pages. More to come!

Thanks to a tip in Backpacker Magazine, I figured out how to geotag my photos by synchronizing the clock in my GPS with the clock in my camera. This allowed me to add photo markers to the trail maps. I'm still tinkering with the interface, but you can see the first results here.
